5 Web Design Tips to Boost Your SEO

5 Web Design Tips to Boost Your SEO

Have you ever visited a website you really loved? It was quick, had the right color scheme, a nice layout, and made the overall experience an enjoyable one. We’ve all visited at least one good website throughout our time online. However, have you ever visited a really bad website? Most likely, you might’ve encountered a slow loading site with an outdated interface filled with blocks of text.


What’s the main factor of these two types of sites? Two words— web design.


Despite its name, web design is much more than what a site looks like. Web design does refer to the design of websites but it focuses more on user experience. The goal of good web design is to make the user experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible.


Combined with SEO, web design can become the ultimate tool to help you and your business increase traffic and boost your conversion rates. Although incorporating web design and SEO isn’t an instant job, when done right, it can impact your business greatly.


In this article, we’re going to break down five web design tips you can use to boost your website’s SEO.

  1. Make it mobile-friendly

If you’re familiar with SEO, you might recognize that having a mobile-friendly website is a must. It’s super important these days since most web traffic comes from mobile devices alone. If you haven’t made your site mobile-friendly yet, you’re a few years behind and you should take the time to do so.


Google made mobile-friendliness a ranking factor back in 2015. So, to have a website that’s not mobile-friendly in this day and age is pretty much a crime against SEO. Not to mention, a lack of mobile-friendly elements in your site can increase your bounce rates.


  1. Make sure people can read text easily

No one wants to spend time on a site that’s hard to read. Poor web design can impact how your content is presented. May it be the small text, bad layout, or just strange placement, it can affect your SEO.


When creating content and publishing it on your site, think of the visitors. What will make it easier for them to view your site? This is a chance for you to utilize white space, different fonts, and larger text sizes to accommodate your visitors. A simple change in design can boost your SEO drastically.


  1. Speed is key

A laggy website is never fun. We’ve experienced it before and when we visit a laggy site, we always close it faster than it loads. Take some time to check how your site loads. If it’s slow, chances are that it could be due to bad web design. 


Speed up your site by optimizing images, getting rid of unnecessary plugins, and allowing browser caching. Ideally, your site should load in two seconds. Any longer than that, then it’s an issue. The speed of your site doesn’t just matter to visitors. It also matters to Google. The longer it takes to load, the less pages Google will crawl and less chances you have for ranking on the search results.

  1. Simple website architecture

Simple website architecture is another thing you should have. In general, website architecture may sound scary and complicated but it’s not as complex as you think. It simply means how the pages on your site are linked together. 


Think of it as a family tree. In conclusion, you want to keep your site architecture simple so Google can crawl your site with ease. So, you want to focus on making Google’s job for crawling your site easier.

  1. Use subheaders

Reading blocks and blocks of text is not a good start when it comes to SEO. The truth is, it’s a dread to read long paragraphs since we can’t see the end and the beginning of the sentences. How can you make reading your site easier?


We think subheaders do a great job at separating blocks of text and emphasizing important points. Although Google is super smart, reading a lot of content mushed together can affect its ability to crawl your site. So, make sure you’re using subheaders correctly and effectively. 


Wrap Up

Web design and SEO go hand in hand when it comes to boosting your site’s conversion rates and improving your business. From what we discussed in the article, the main points to having excellent web design for SEO begins with knowledge about what factors affect SEO such as mobile friendliness, site speed, and readability. 


Once you’ve got the basics covered, you can create a web design for your site that’ll be sure to drive traffic and help Google crawl your pages easily. All in all, you need to be aware of how Google works in terms of crawling and ranking sites.


Now that you have a rough idea of what to do, it’s time to assess your site and see what it needs.

Web design companies in Reno: Providing invaluable services to businesses and communities

Web design companies in Reno: Providing invaluable services to businesses and communities

who is the best web design company in reno?

So many of us do a Google search for a term, sentence or word, and then scroll through dozens (if not hundreds!) or search results. We’ll effortlessly browse through any number of web sites to find just what we need – from the comfort of our (mobile) homes, offices and hotel rooms. But how many of us stop to think: Who are the people that make such ease and comfort possible?

More than just pretty web pages!

The answer: It’s web design companies!

According to an industry report published by research firm IBIS World, the 75,531 businesses in the web design industry, across the U.S., employ over 144,549 professionals. In 2019 alone, the industry generated over $38 billion in revenue. So, what does that mean in “real” terms:

  • More jobs
  • More taxes
  • More growth to the nation’s economy
  • More addition to the country’s GDP numbers

That’s a lot of “mores” coming from an industry that works largely behind the scenes! As an industry, web designing service providers do more – much more – than just create beautiful web pages. A look at just a tiny fraction of what they do gives an insight to how invaluable they truly are to individuals, businesses and community institutions:

  • Graphic design
  • Interface design
  • User experience design
  • Search engine optimization
  • Content development
  • Coding
  • …and a lot more

The impact of web design companies is especially important for businesses and communities in smaller population centers like Reno, NV. As Reno emerged from its image as a center for the entertainment and gaming industry, it quietly acquired the skills and expertise to deliver high-tech services to businesses locally and afar.

Putting Reno on the world stage

It might sound like an “over statement”, but it really is the truth – local web design companies in Reno do a lot to shine a global spotlight on the city. And the reason is simple math: A small number of highly talented individuals get more recognition than a vast pool of resources that drown in an even bigger ocean of talent.

In larger population centers, there are hundreds of web design companies that compete for business from thousands of businesses and community organizations. The much larger economies of their regions hardly feel the impact of what they do. But in less populated centers (compared to, say, the Big Apple or the Sunshine State) like the Biggest Little City in the World, the efforts of web design companies:

  • Puts Reno businesses on the global map
  • Enables the city’s businesses to create supply chains spanning the nation and even internationally by facilitating eCommerce
  • Allows Reno residents and communities access to products and services nationwide and even globally
  • Empowers Reno businesses and communities with the ability to conduct transactions 24×7, on-the-go by supporting mobile web service providers

Even the slightest achievement on the part of Reno’s web designing companies, goes a long way to adding to the competitiveness of local businesses. And to make their impact felt, Reno web designers must be good – perhaps even better than their peers in large cities – at what they do. And they are!

Reno web design companies are second to none when it comes to providing local businesses with solutions based on leading-edge web technologies either. Whether it’s an Magento-based eStore, a dynamic Drupal website designed for heavy traffic, a personalized WordPress website, a high-performance Shopify store front or a SharePoint-based ecosystem – you’ll find the expertise at a local Reno web design company.

Make the most of your website

Reno Web Designer’s Webby Award-winning founder and “designer-in-chief”, Sandy Rowley, brings the power of high-quality web sites and puts it in the hands of businesses and communities across Reno – and even beyond. Whether it’s a personal website, a corporate online presence, or an online global B-2-B portal that you’re looking for, Sandy can help you with your vision.

You can call or text Sandy Rowley @ 775-870-0488 to learn how your business or community organization can reap the benefits of high-quality web design services, provided right here in Reno.
